Snubs are an important part of Oscar tradition – everyone loves to have a good moan at what should have might have been. We all remember when ‘Crash’ beat out ‘Brokeback Mountain’ (though that’s just me conforming to popular opinion, I loved ‘Crash’) or when ‘Dances with Wolves’ waltzed its way past ‘Goodfellas’ and we all immediately branded the Academy as a bunch of middle- to ancient-aged blokes with no comprehension of the modern-day movie. That’s something that I appreciate about movies; they’re subjective – what one person loves, another person detests. Some people think ‘A Walk To Remember’ is the greatest movie to have ever been made and that ‘The Dark Knight’ is a childish reimagination of a bloke with some very clear issues. Others maintain that ‘The Godfather’ or ‘Vertigo’ is the best film that has ever been created – of course, they probably haven’t seen either. »
